We chose this park primarily based on its pet friendly status. Upon arrival, it was obvious that there is much work in progress around the park, which meant parking was at a premium whilst checking in. This was after negotiating the tight turn off of the road to gain access to the park, which, should a vehicle be exiting, would require stopping in the middle of the road. I don't know why caravan parks insist on such nonsensical driveways, when their prime customers are driving around in generally lengthy rigs. Check in was handled smoothly enough, and we then had to find our own way via the proffered map to our site. Once there, we found the site to be only just adequate in size, leaving us feeling somewhat cramped between the neighbouring vans. Our van is about 23 feet, a rather modest size these days, and yet it was a herculean effort to negotiate the tight space to get it parked. As a bonus, our site, as did most, had a concrete annex pad, which was handing considering the recent weather had made the surrounding grassed area more of a bog than a luscious lawn. The bathroom facilities were old, but adequate, although seemed to have been invaded by mosquitoes. Not a fun experience to be showering surrounded by there critters, I hope it was due to the recent weather, but we weren't there long enough to find out.
